The Aristocracy of Woodfall Swamp is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Odwja with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.528 billion Woodfallians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barra. The average income tax rate is 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Woodfallian economy, worth a remarkable 6,719 trillion Golden Leaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 312,108 Golden Leaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Woodfall Swamp's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Temple of Woodfall.

Woodfall Swamp is ranked 800th in the world and 4th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 12,393.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
